The Hollywood films of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone will be releasing next year and the actresses are definitely putting India on the map of cinema. However, an actor who had gained popularity even before these actresses was Anil Kapoor with his roles in Slumdog Millionaire, and Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. The actor had also lent his voice for the American TV show, Family Guy.

Now, Anil is all set to go international once again, this time for a digital series based on the popular book, The Book of Strange New Things, written by Michel Faber.

 

Incidentally, Kapoor had refused to be part of the project when he was offered it the first time as he was busy with the shoot of his own television series 24 and his son, Harshvardhan, was gearing up for his debut at that time. However, the makers were keen to cast him and the actor later shot for the pilot of the series in South Africa.

Kapoor will essay the role of authoritarian Vikram Danesh in the project who is the leader of planet Oasis in outer space and meets the protagonist, an English priest, when he is sent there.
